hey, i've already poked my head in the newcomer thread and asked how difficult it is to solo in GW (thanks to those who answered btw), so now i'm asking what build would give me the best chances of doing well on my own.
i should stress that i haven't played the game yet at all, and i'm just trying to get some background on whether or not i'd like it (because my strong preference is to solo, and obviously if that's very difficult in this game then maybe it's not the game for me).
having had a VERY brief look at the available professions, my instinct would be to go with some kind of build that's capable of healing itself. also, i like ranged attacks, so i'm thinking ranger/monk? elementalist/monk? does this make sense?
also, i'm curious about how one goes about healing one's char -- monks supposedly have the ability to heal by magic, but are there healing items that you can buy or find, that can be used by any character? potting would be a lovely thing to be able to do, so i'm not dependent on anyone else.
edit: i should add: PvE is my priority. :)
